What were some of your favorite 8 bit games?

I loved Miner 2049.

Frogger
Pac Man
Joust

Moon Patrol
Chopper Command (used to play this for hours on my neighbor's Atari 2600)


You can play some flash versions here:

You can also download and play a number of old games from:
Atari Mania

I still play them on my M.A.M.E. cabinet:

Chopper command was a good one. I also loved Karateka. ZZ Top Eliminator was great video game playing music.

Missile command was one of my favorites in the arcade.

Great memories. What I could have done with all of those quarters...

Inspired by the fun of 8bit.com (thanks for that), I searched for my favorite arcade game - I think it was the only one that I ever finished - Capcom's 1942, and I found a playable online version at arcade-gameover.com, along with some other great games, like Commando and Ghosts 'n Goblins.

Ooooooo.... 1942... I remember playing that in the arcade a lot. 1943 wasn't quite as good, but I don't remember why.
